  • Date: 17/07/2022
  • Competition: Club friendly
  • KO: 21:15 CET
  • Venue: Estádio Do Algarve (São João da Venda)

Benfica and Fulham continue their pre-season preparations with a friendly fixture at the Estádio Do Algarve in São João da Venda.

Both sides come into this fixture on the back of respective matches with French side Nice in the previous 48 hours, and plenty of rotation is expected from both sides.

Given both sides' lack of game time, it´s pretty tough to make any big calls for this friendly fixture and low states are advised.

Of course, Fulham are regulars in the over 2.5 goals market, having seen that outcome in 5 of their last 7 league matches en route to their promotion to the Premiership.

Benfica usually holds a tighter ship, though, with clean sheets kept in 5 of their last 6 matches prior to their friendly on Friday against Nice making the over 2.5 goal pick somewhat less assured.

Ultimately, as with any pre-season friendly, it´s tough to make too many assertions but given their extra recovery time and the relative “home” advantage, we expect Benfica to claim the spoils with Fulham coming into this contest little more than 24 hours on from their match against Nice.

New boss Roger Schmidt is certain to make plenty of changes following the fixture with Nice on Friday.

Unfortunately, the new manager will have to cope without the services of Derwin Nunez and Everton who have both left the club for Liverpool and Flamengo.
